On May 26, the City Council recommended the city manager take a phased approach to reopening Lake Pflugerville. In addition to trails being reopened on Tuesday, the lake is now open for fishing from the banks, small boats may be launched from the banks and open space may be used for recreation with social distancing. While restrooms remain closed, portable toilets are on site for public use.
“Concern for the health and safety of residents must be balanced with the desired uses of the lake, trails and city amenities,” Mayor Victor Gonzales said. “It is important to note that COVID-19 is not going away, so we must continue to be mindful. We know that residents want to use the lake and enjoy the outdoors so we are opening in phases starting with bank fishing, small boats and open space.”
Based on the City’s phased plan, amenities including swimming, pavilion use, beach and the public restroom facility will be reopened in future phases. City Council will continue to evaluate the timing of future phases based on the recommendations of local, state and public health officials.
The City of Pflugerville asks that all park users practice social distancing and properly dispose of all trash. Keeping the trail and park beautiful helps keep the community safe.
